Colors Look Different in Print

You may notice differences between the colors you see on screen and those in print. This is normal. The differences will usually be slight. However, more significant differences may occur depending on your monitor settings, printer, ink, and other factors. Keep in mind that color on your screen is created with light, while color on paper is created with ink. This will affect the appearance of some colors. For example, bright colors on a screen will generally look somewhat duller in print.
